How to Organize your Closet into Stories

In fashion retail it is common practice to display items in Stories – it is an ideal way of showing what goes with what…

In the last few posts I’ve shown how I buy strategically for the season.  In this post I’d like to demonstrate how to organize your closet so that it is easy for you to see the range of options that you have to maximize the impact of your items.

I’m using a trick that I learned in the fashion retail sector which makes it easier to see at a glance what  you have in your closet, and how you can combine pieces together to achieve lots of different outfits.

You will see from these photos that I have placed sweaters, tops, jeans, tees, shoes and accessories together where their potential can be realized.  Best of all with this display method is that it’s difficult to forget pieces that are hidden away in drawers, or are distributed amongst other closets.

Obviously you will be restricted by the closet space that you have, and by the configuaration of that space.  Here I’ve just used an old display rail to give you the idea – normally this lot will be housed in a section of hanging space with shoes below, bag hanging behind the door, sweaters, tees and jeans folded below the hanging rail and accessories interspersed between the clothes so I don’t forget that I have them!

Almost all of these pieces are from previous seasons, as you will know if you’ve been following my styling tips and philosophy.  When I reorganized my closet for Spring I discovered several contenders for inclusion with my edit that I hadn’t included mentally.  Result!  More bang for my bucks ;D

If you flip over to my Looks page you will see how I create different styles from these pieces.  Using separates in this way enables me to look fresh and interesting even tho I’m wearing pieces on repeat!

That’s it for now folks, thanks for stopping by, Sarah x

Baby Boomer speaks for itself, yes I am a woman of a certain age ;) Why Badass? I have Rock & Roll in my DNA, coupled with some Punk Attitude and a (Lovin) Spoonful of Hippie Chic. Altogether BABB ;O The blog is not intended to be age specific, or indeed age appropriate! It is more about my style philosophy. The blog is to help girls and women of all ages to become more confident in expressing who they are through the way they dress. Mine are style tips and tricks based on years of styling, and an extensive knowledge of the fashion industry. My shopping advice is suitable for those with a limited budget, those who are strapped for cash, and for the lucky ones who have cash to splash. Personally I mix it up, marrying high street with high end to achieve my unique look. I hope that you will enjoy my new blog, Sarah x

  1. I love these tips. Organization is not one of my strong points. I’m guilty of storing items in drawers and forgetting about them. The idea of keeping those things you love and wear often front and center really appeals to me. I see closet reorganization in my near future and many consignment trips. Thanks for the kick in the butt Sarah 😘
